Forklift Tomfoolery 
1998 Personal Account

Chad Sweigert says modestly, "Not as entertaining, but..."

We operate forklifts where I work. One day, a gentleman put his arm through the mast of the machine, which contains the hydraulic level system. Needless to say, he is currently on disability. But the

story is about a second gentleman, who made fun of the incident by commenting, "Only an idiot does something that stupid." Wouldn't you know it, an hour later that same gentleman did the exact same thing. He is also out on disability.
